Canine Hyperadrenocorticism

Internal Medicine | 78 mins

Canine hyperadrenocorticism is a relatively commonly encountered endocrinopathy, and generally presents as a dog with PUPD. It is essential to exclude other causes of PUPD before performing more specific tests for hyperadrenocorticism, to avoid the risk of false positive results and a subsequent potential misdiagnosis. In this webinar we will discuss the logical approach to the dog with suspected hyperadrenocorticism, and also the advantages and limitations of the various endocrine tests commonly used to help exclude or confirm this diagnosis.  In addition, treatment protocols and therapeutic monitoring will be discussed.
